Animation of the Lead Shortsword. Note the limited range.

The Lead Shortsword is the lead variant of the Iron Shortsword (when a world is spawned with Lead Ore instead of Iron Ore during world creation), and is a slightly more effective weapon.

Like all shortswords, the Lead Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile, and horizontally in front of the player on Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 3DS3DS version, Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, instead of an arc. This makes it almost useless against flying or jumping enemies, although its high attack rate makes it somewhat effective against weaker fighter type enemies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
